Met some amazing people here and had a blast. Close to the train station. Discounts at the local laundromat, the restaurant next door, etc. no curfew. Mike the bartender is a legend. Ask him to make you something, it's always good and the prices are hard to beat. Beds were comfy, ensuite was nice. Lockers in the rooms. Quiet area until the church bells go off at 8am, but I never heard them. Wish I stayed here longer instead of booking in a different hostel for the remainder of my time in Rome.


We had an amazing stay here!! I had a broken foot and everyone was SO helpful!! Extra thanks to Mike for the fun parties at night! Also close to a great trattoria, pizzeria, and Yellow Bar. Thanks everyone!


Great location near the train station, can take the metro anywhere from there. Everything is mostly within a half hour walk too. Great atmosphere, bar downstairs and next door so plenty of places to meet people. Really enjoyed my stay here.


One good place, near the central station in Rome, good and awesome staffers, the only thing is that my room and the toilet Was always dirty but everything is perfect !! Awesome place I recommend this for everyone


You get lockers, perfect wifi, a very lively bar downstairs, quite a good location close to termini station and entertaining fun staff as well as cool travelers! oh and also a rooftop hangout area. Also yellow hostel is around the corner where travelers go for a drink


This is a party hostel with organized events close to the train station. No food at the hostel but a few restaurants close by.

Pretty overrated bar. Not the cleanliness of places and the atmosphere was kind of dull.


This hostel was fine. Fairly average experience except for the helpful staff, who were exceptional. The location is right next to the main station, and we walked everywhere easily. I would stay again but I wasn't overly impressed.


Staff was somewhat helpful. After they check you in, they seemed like they didn't want to be bothered by answering questions. Room was extremely dirty. Cleaning staff came in to make beds, but the bathroom remained unsanitary until I asked for the bathroom to be clean. Items from previous stays left in room untouched. Elevator was out of service multiple times...very temperamental. Lack of community vibe


Easy to get to and from the train/metro station. Lots of travelers to meet.


This place was great, nice easy location with all the amenities you could ask for


Rome was the best city of my eurotrip and I have to be honest: Alessandro Palace is part of this impression. Good location and rooms.


No kitchen or any facilities to keep or heat up food. Pretty noisy, door/walls were thin. Otherwise a good place, very helpful staff, really close to the train station

Some of the staff are desperate to sell you the bar crawls, which was fine. But we were charged for entry to the club as well as the fee for joining the bar crawl, which was dishonest on behalf of those administering the event. The hostel is fun though. Rooms are good quality. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful.


Great location from the train station. Staff were very friendly and helpful with room changes. Would recommend for anyone who is on a budget!


Where do I begin. A decent stay. The hostel pub crawl is absolute garbage - do you expect to hold the attention of 50 drunk people who've just met just to give them useful information that will go unheard? Atmosphere is decent, met really cool people but bar is not that great. Facilities are decent. Staff were great, until I asked for a favour dealing with my luggage that one gave me the cold shoulder. Screw that. The pub crawl is horrible, don't do it. Or do it. I can go on about it for a while

Pretty standard hostel. Nothing really to complain about. Wifi was a bit spotty at times but that happens everywhere in Europe. Staff were available all the time so if you ever needed anything help was always there. Friendly staff and guests. Enjoyed my stay.


Nice place, with nice staff, and great ambience for meeting people all around the world.


Far exceeded our expectations. Bottle of wine gift on arrival much appreciated as was the booking of very good budget tour of Vatican which by passes huge queues and organised by helpful, friendly Hostel staff. Large bedroom with roomy ensuite toilet/shower was a pleasant surprise. Would recommend this Hostel to anyone as first choice in Rome
